May 9, 1964
Deposition Statement, Judge Blythin
Deposition statement of New York Journal American Reporter Dorothy Kilgallen Kollmar. She answers Attorney F. Lee Bailey's questions regarding conversations she had with trial Judge Blythin (in chambers) before the trial proceeded. Her statements indicate that Judge Blythin believed the case was "open and shut" and also his surprise of all the media attention the case brought. Kollmar commented that the case was a good media draw because of the classic "mystery" surrounding the murder.
